Stunning 360 view from on top of the lighthouse. Combination of clear, turquoise and blue sea water with rock formations and coconut trees is a real treat for your eyes! Snorkelling near the island is also a good idea. Although I found the coral is not too healthy anymore.

What's not to love about this place - gorgeous beach, historical lighthouse, and clear water! Not to mention big smooth boulders on the beach, snorkeling nearby, and the possibility to climb to the top of the lighthouse, constructed by the Dutch in 1882. We rented a boat on the main island of Belitung and it was about a 20 minute... More

When I first saw the pictures from internet, I thought it's just a normal island with a lighthouse. But it's dotted with countless granite rocks which are so characteristic of Belitung and the view from the top of the lighthouse is simply spectacular. The ocean is very blue and green... and the snorkeling nearby Lengkuas Island is surprisingly great. The... More

We can find some gigantic stone at the beach of Lengkuas Island. The panorama is very beautiful. There is also a mercusuar built by Dutch colonial at 1882. Tourists could climb the 70 meters lighthouse for free. We could just play and sit in the white sandy beach. There were some stall on Lengkuas Beach selling the coconut to drink.

The views from the lighthouse were beautiful and the island gorgeous with white sand beaches. It is small and you will run out of things to do quickly, but the boat ride over is relaxing with very nice views so overall worth the trip.

Many shops in the beach... More

I love the sandy beach. Found the quiet spot such a lagoon. Do not come in peak season or weekend, bunch of people are coming. If you could come in the mid week it's gonna be better.
